London Markets Columbia Road

July 28th, 2014

Every weekend, we tend to head to one of the many markets around London.  Columbia Road Flower Market is by far on the top of my list.  Natasha in the above picture shared that she comes to Columbia Road market every Sunday to get flowers for her home and garden.  Natasha recommends that the print store Ryantown is not to be missed.

If you plan on coming to the market, be sure to get there very early (before 10am) or very late (1-1:30pm).  The benefit to getting there early is that you beat the crowds and get first pick at the flowers and goodies from the antique market.  You can grab a coffee at Printers & Stationers, browse the flowers and leisurely pop in and out of the stores on Columbia Road. Come 11 or noon, it’s hard to move.  However, by getting there a bit later, you do save on the flowers as the merchants want to take a minimum amount of stock home with them.

To get to the market, you can take the Overground to Hoxton or Shoreditch and walk over to Columbia Road.

Paris has been lovely. We’ve been out shooting for a project and have had long, late, yet fun nights in the city making gorgeous photos. I’m so excited to share some with you in a few weeks. In the meantime, here are some photos from last Thursday on the Alexandre III bridge.

 

 

 

 

Bateaux Mouches in Paris

July 14th, 2014

Can you guess where we are this week? These photos were taken on a leisurely ride on a Bateaux Mouches to best see the city that was named for the Parisii, the original inhabitants of….


………Paris. You guessed it!

When I’m not on location, I’m running after my toddler, Honey Bunny, but I realllly hope to make it into central Paris to take photos for you. In the meantime, enjoy these photos from our trip down the Seine on a particularly rainy day.

Ok, you got me. This isn’t the Seine. It’s the metro entrance to Saint Michel.  We got off at Saint Michel to walk towards Notre Dame for the one hour trip down the Seine. Here’s the company we used:  Bateaux Parisiens.

 

 

Italian Men’s Fashion

July 6th, 2014

In Italy (in Europe in general), it’s so much fun to see how the men interpret fashion in their own way (read very different than how American men dress).  On the whole, they are smartly dressed–young or old.  Case in point, this gentleman above in his muted colored clothes and slim-fit jeans.

My wardrobe is very colorful, but I’ve started an all-black uniform for when I’m on assignment.  This photo taken in Milan is definitely going on my inspiration board.
